DEVOTION: “And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.” – Philippians‬ ‭4:19

It took me a minute tonight to find this verse. I was scrolling through a few different verses before settling on this one. There’s something that stood out to me, the part about supplying our needs. God will always supply our needs.

You see, we are in the middle of a very drastic and unsettling change. I started it back in October when I took this ministry full time. I reinvented and reassessed my needs. I started thinking about needs and wants. How those two words would affect my desires and intentions.

Now…we are here, today. We are being forced into this conversation with ourselves. What do we want? What are our needs? Basic necessities, yes….but after that…..????

It starts an interesting conversation in your mind doesn’t it? Things that seemed important even a week ago have shifted. Desires have shifted. It’s almost as if the playing field has been leveled.

Think about this for a minute. Pray about wants and needs. Talk to God about your desires. Your dreams. What’s included in that? What’s not?

I wonder what God is up to here?
